Do you have a pointer to that video? I've seen other Nissan videos with claims that turned out to be untrue but not those specific numbers (e.g. viewtopic.php?p=469608#p469608).

I only remember the "10% after 5 years, 20% after 8 years" or something along those lines. The reality is miles never were a good barometer since there is easy miles, stop and go miles and "drive like a nut" miles....

We're considering either selling or paying for a new battery pack in our 2011 blue Leaf, 26,000 miles, 10 bars left but we have to make a regular longish trip that the Leaf can't quite do any more. I saw one post from a San Diego owner saying he paid about $1200 for a new battery pack. Anyone have other examples of the cost? We're in San Francisco. We love our Leaf, so might go that route.

I've got another little niggle with my car now - just the last week my passenger seat has developed a squeak. Probably the seat springs, since I can make it happen by wiggling my tush. All the more noticeable in an otherwise quiet car.
